Shaping the future mobile information society: Social and human considerations for a more mobile world Background paper

In recent years, the world has seen an explosion in the growth of information and communication technologies (ICT), and particularly mobile communications. 2002 marked a turning point in the history of telecommunications in that the number of mobile subscribers overtook the number of fixed-line subscribers on a global scale, and mobile became the dominant technology for voice communications. Indeed, the mobile phone has moved beyond being a mere technical device to becoming a key “social object” present in every aspect of our daily lives. Always-on connectivity and mobility will define not only the future technological landscape, but equally the socio-political one.
